Kérastase Bain Chroma Captive - Cleanse

Stars (of the celestial variety, though the same could be said for Hollywood) lose their allure when their brilliance fades. Which is exactly the case with color-treated hair: Fading means dull, damaged, lifeless locks. This sulfate-free shampoo maintains your hair's brilliance, preserving color depth for up to 40 days. Shine on.

Did not love

I really wanted to love this shampoo, but I couldn't. It did not leave my hair soft or shiny. I will not be purchasing this in the future.

Worked but oh God the smell...

If the government is looking for a new alternative to tear gas, they should probably call L'Oreal for the fragrance formula for Kerstase.

I have to say, the shampoo worked great. It left my hair soft and moisturized, but still fulfilled my OCD need for squeaky clean hair while I was showering. I'd love this except for the smell.

Worked okay
Sampled

I think that it smelled okay, but I don't feel like it worked better than the one I already used. It was hard to tell with just using a sample.

Was this shampoo?
Sampled

When I wash my hair, I expect my shampoo, at a minimum, to leave my hair soft and silky. This, instead, made it matte and kind of tough-feeling, which was really disappointing. The packaging was also small and cheap looking, like something that would fall out of a magazine.

Shampoo??
Sampled

It went along nicely with the VERY boring and unpleasing theme and contents of this months box.

I didn't feel this product had a good, clean scent. I also didn't feel like it cleaned my hair well and didn't make it soft. I think the fact that I only received a sample for shampoo but not the conditioner impacted the experience. I would never buy a shampoo without the conditioner, so without the full experience I would not buy this product.

Smells Great - Doesnt Work!
Sampled

Smells great... but does not work! I washed my hair, and made sure to rinse thoroughly, but my hair still felt like there was a residue. I only use sulfate free products now, so I was excited to try this - unfortunately, it didnt work on my hair.

L'oreal?
Sampled

I used this stuff and I think it is extremely over priced. One its L'oreal, two I don't think it did anything special for my hair. I will stick with the macadamia oil I have been using.

I'd rather have Wen
Sampled

I prefer to use Wen, which I feel makes my color look better than this does.
